Technology is not the world

“It’s been hard to accept, at least for me, that each of our techy ideologies, while containing various merits, don’t really add up to a worldview, because technology is not the world. It’s just another layer in the Big Crappy Human System along with religion, energy, government, sex, and, more than anything else, money.

Why I (Still) Love Tech (Wired)

This essay from Paul Ford echoes much of how I feel about this industry I fell into. I love tech because of the opportunity it affords us. Tech isn’t inherently good or evil. It reflects the intent and decisions of those who harness it.

Also FTA: “Technology is just another human creation—like religion or government or sports or money. It’s not perfect, and it never will be. But it’s still a miracle.” — Amen.
